CompTIA Exam Takers Dilemma!

CompTIA New Remote Testing Options

COVID-19 Response: Voucher Extensions, New Remote Testing Options

Credit CompTIA:

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to cause disruption and uncertainty, we want to alleviate one of your possible concerns: sitting for your certification exam. CompTIA understands the investment and effort you make in studying and training for your certification. Candidate success is of utmost importance to CompTIA and we are working to ensure you have all the necessary resources and test taking options available to you.


Extensions on Voucher Expiration
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, all CompTIA exam vouchers with expiration dates from March 17 through April 30, 2020 have been extended to June 30, 2020. In addition, all CompTIA exam vouchers with expiration dates from May 1 through May 31, 2020 have been extended through July 31, 2020. CompTIA will continue to monitor timelines, and any additional updates will be posted as available.


Availability of Remote/Home Testing
CompTIA will very shortly be offering candidates remote certification testing. Remote testing is ideal because candidates can:

• Test anywhere – especially from the security and privacy of their own home.
• Test anytime – remote testing can be conducted 24/7, so candidates can schedule their exam whenever time permits, avoiding competing priorities or conflicts.
• In a highly secure environment – online proctoring ensures all candidates take their tests under the same secure monitoring conditions as a test center.


We expect to have this option available in April.
Candidates Already Registered
If you are already registered for an exam at a Pearson VUE testing center, but would like to instead take a remote proctored exam, CompTIA will be offering the option to reschedule your exam. Please visit the Pearson VUE website for current testing availability in a test center.
For remote testing, please provide your email so we can provide you further instructions as they become available.
